Alarm (VTSS) goes off when unlocking doors with a key. Door lock cylinders no longer have door
disarm circuits. The security alarm can only be disarmed with a programmed key registered to the
vehicle. Once the alarm has been triggered, and valid unlock lock request is required by remote or by
inserting a programmed key into the ignition and turning it to the run position. Changes to the door
lock disarm functions improved the vehicles security allowing only the vehicles electronic systems to
disarm with a valid programmed key.

Will the remote lock and unlock the doors? If you manually unlock all the doors will they all lock with the remote? Or will the drivers door the only dor that will lock/unlock with the remote?
